This isn’t Serena Williams’ first stint in the entertainment industry!

Although, working with the Hollywood legend, famous for his role as James Bond, is a memorable experience; this is not Serena’s first on-screen appearance. Earlier, she has played many memorable on-screen roles.

Her very first appearance was in 2002, in the show ‘My Wife and Kids’, which was followed by accompanying her elder sister, on the Oprah Winfrey show. Inspired by their successful on-screen debut, the Williams sisters started their reality TV show, ‘Venus and Serena, for Real’ in 2005. And the saga continued when Serena marked her presence at the Late Night with Conan O’ Brian and the famous Letterman Show in 2012. The six-time US Open champion also voice-acted two characters (Ming in the Last Airbender and female sage in the Legend of Korra) in the popular animated TV show ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ and its sequel.
